I'm a huge fan of Towson University. The environment is great with a not-too-big campus and plenty of students. While their greek life could be improved in size, the student involvement is definitely present and alive. The professors overall are nice and helpful and the advisors are a huge help for signing up for classes and making sure you graduate on time. Towson's website is easy to navigate as well as their campus! There's always friendly faces to help you if you need it. Towson also has nice buildings that are recently updated as well as new improvements in process. Overall, I'm glad I've chosen Towson University to guide me to adulthood.

What I love about Towson is the overall atmosphere. I love being so close to the city but not quite in it. The Towson University community is small enough to see a lot of familiar faces everyday but still big enough to meet new people whenever I want. One thing I think Towson could improve on is its involvement with clubs and greek life. They exist, but I think if more people were to get involved in them and they were more emphasized on, it would get students more involved with the school and would make Towson a better place!

The dorms are a good way to stay connected on campus! They are pretty spacious for the most part. Management is constantly upgrading the living space with new remodeling and such. The worst part is the bathroom sharing( I wish they had a private bathroom for each room, and not a bathroom per 2 rooms). Cost is pretty fair, but sometimes it seems too expensive considering tuition needs to be paid. The process for getting housing can be extraneous, but everyone will eventually will find a home. They should definitely have cheaper housing for upperclassmen.
